Vegan Diet & Vital Nutrients

The top 5 nutrients deficiencies in people who follow plant-based diets are:

  1. Vitamin B12 
  2. Vitamin D 
  3. Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  4. Zinc 
  5. Iron

These nutrients are abundant in animal products but there is no single plant-based source that supplies them all. Fortunately, it is possible to get all these nutrients by eating a variety of plants, seeds and nuts. Vegan overnight oats are an easy, delicious and nutritious option for a vegan breakfast or snack and with the right toppings, can give you the nutritional boost that you need.


 

Benefits of Vegan Overnight Oats

Oatmeal itself should be a staple in a vegan diet. Oatmeal is full of:

✓  Fiber & prebiotics which is great for your digestion 

✓  B-vitamins which are great from your immune system and brain

✓  Protein which is an essential macronutrient

✓  Zinc and Vitamin D, two of the nutrients that are trickier to get in a plant-based diet!

Oats are one of the healthiest grains on earth and it is recommended that we have 3 servings of whole grains a day. By eating oats, you can reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. It is also gluten free, good for weight loss and for lowering blood sugar levels. All reasons why you should eat oatmeal!
